Coach Ron Rivera confirmed Tuesday that he plans to keep Webb on the Panthers' 53-man roster as the team's third quarterback, the Associated Press reports.
With Cam Newton's health a bit uncertain after he suffered a hairline fracture to his ribs in last Friday's preseason game, the Panthers will enter the regular season with two backups on hand as insurance. With Derek Anderson locked in as the Panthers' No. 2 quarterback, Webb could be let go by the team once Newton is deemed completely healthy.

Joe Webb confirmed the Panthers are using him as a quarterback.
Webb spent last season as a seldom-used wide receiver for the Vikings, catching five passes for 33 yards. Now in Carolina, he's sharing spring reps with Derek Anderson as Cam Newton rehabs from ankle surgery. They could end up battling for one roster spot at training camp.

The Vikings aren't expected to re-sign free agent QB/WR Joe Webb.
Minnesota has put a lot of time and effort into Webb only to see it turn into six career catches for 42 yards and a 1-1 record, including a playoff loss, as a starting quarterback. The 2010 sixth-rounder is an athletic freak but needs plenty more seasoning. Webb's market likely won't be very hot this spring.

Joe Webb is being evaluated solely as a receiver in Vikings camp.
Coach Leslie Frazier hinted strongly that Webb's past quarterbacking won't be a consideration at cut-down time. That's a problem for Webb, as the Vikes' top four receivers are already set, and they may only keep five. Webb proved once and for all that he's not an NFL quarterback with his cringe-worthy performance in Minnesota's Wild Card loss.

The Vikings are working to find creative ways to use converted WR Joe Webb.
Coach Leslie Frazier spoke about using Webb in multiple looks, saying "we do have ideas about some things we want to do with him beyond just lining him up at the X or the Z position." However, Frazier concedes that Webb has a long way to go in terms of running routes, a skill not easily mastered. We expect Webb to have a difficult time developing into a serviceable weapon for the team.

Joe Webb is reportedly "catching everything" at OTAs.
Webb's transition from quarterback to wideout has started off smoothly, at least from a hands perspective. He's battling with the likes of Stephen Burton and Chris Summers for the No. 5 receiver spot. At 6'4/220 with 4.44 wheels, Webb certainly has a leg up in raw talent.
